Invitation to the Community

Dear Community Member,

I’m excited to invite you to join in an important effort that will contribute to Vallejo’s bright future as an economically vibrant, safe, healthy community and a source of pride for all of us!

We need your help in our new Vallejo Planning Initiatives Project to:

  • Create Guiding Principles that express our community’s shared vision and values and will serve as a compass for the project over the next three years.
  • Update our General Plan to guide land use decisions throughout the city, tie together existing specific plans, and promote economic vitality and public health and safety.
  • Create a Specific Plan for Sonoma Boulevard to support economic development together with recently completed design concepts and guidelines for the area.
  • Update our Zoning Code to make it more user-friendly and consistent with the General Plan, and to incorporate innovative ways to ensure that physical changes fit and enhance our city’s character.

In addition, Environmental Review will be conducted for of all of these components to ensure that land use activities do not negatively affect our community.

Starting with the Guiding Principles that will shape the rest of the effort, we are reaching out to the community at large to invite everyone to have a voice in the process. We invite you to attend one of the following workshops to tell us your priorities, concerns and hopes for Vallejo’s future:
